ST. JOSPEH, Mo. — The American Angus Auxiliary is committed to serving the Business Breed through a number of capacities each year. Youth scholarships and awards, educational events such as the All-American Certified Angus Beef ® Cook-off, Women Connected Conference, scholarship workshops and supporting state Auxiliaries are just a few of the ways the volunteer organization gives back to the Angus business — efforts made possible thanks to a dedicated group of leaders.
If you feel strongly about the future of the Angus breed and the Auxiliary’s mission, serving on the national level is a wonderful way to contribute, says Leslie Mindemann, Auxiliary advisor and past president.
“All it takes is a love for the breed and our kids to become involved at this level,” Mindemann said. “The achievements, experiences and friendships made possible by serving in a leadership position have been so rewarding.”
The American Angus Auxiliary is now accepting nominations for the following positions: the 2019-2020 secretary/treasurer and directors for Regions 4, 5 and 6 (Midwest, South and Northeast) Regional Directors are elected by member vote within their respective regions. Officer positions are elected at the Annual Meeting in November.
If you or someone you know is interested in a position on the American Angus Auxiliary executive team, please request a nomination from Mindemann, who also serves as the Nomination Committee Chair. After closing nominations, Aug. 1, prospective candidates will be contacted by the committee to verify the nominee’s acceptance, complete an application, discuss the election process, duties and answer questions.
The American Angus Auxiliary consists of individuals interested in the welfare of the Angus breed and its youth. For more details on Auxiliary activities, the respective regions or officer duties, contact Mindemann or visit www.angusauxiliary.com and click on the “Guidelines” link.
